SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
Tucked into the velvety loft of the Lyceum Theatre (take the stairs up to the right immediately inside the doors), Candor is a cocktail bar with a small/intimate stage. It leans heavily on nostalgia for a sort of 1920's-via-1950's burlesque aesthetic. It's dominated by a curtained stage that stops a few inches short of the seating area, vintage paintings and photos on the walls, masks, feathers in place of flowers, crystal chandelier lighting, and a long bar manned by waistcoated bartenders. Private booths line the walls. It's exceedingly red. Cocktails are, for the most part, in the 90-100rmb range, and "bold." Several come with a licorice straw, or a miniature cinema-style popcorn bucket hanging off the side. There are regular shows of the showgirl/cabaret/burlesque variety, but they sometimes host in other styles, sticking close to the early-mid 20th century. The seating's pretty strict during shows: tickets on the door don't guarantee a seat.
